Good hostel but out of the centre of Boston, you need to get the train in. The hostel has a free shuttle that runs most of the time though to and from the train station. Clean hostel, good dorm rooms and friendly staff

I absolutely loved the environment at the Boston Backpackers and cannot speak highly enough of the staff who work there. Everyone is incredibly friendly, welcoming, down to earth and always up for a laugh! The people who work here really do go above and beyond to deliver exceptional customer service to every single guest and make you feel as comfortable... More

I had booked for 3 nights, but stayed for 7. Loved the friendly athmosphere, comfortable beds, accsess to wifi, tv, pub and smokers areas outside. Getting downtown Boston was no problem, thanks to the shuttle, (Wayne!) . But in Everett, the charming town, you find almost everything you might need. Nice restaurants, shops, post office etc. Starting with an easy... More

I stayed here on April to support a friend that was running the Boston Marathon. Becuase of the event and the time I decided to go, all hotels near the center were full, so this option was the best I found for this time. It is not near the city center, but the hostel for free takes you to the... More

This would have been 5 stars if the location was more central, however the free shuttle is very handy and you don't wait much longer than 10 minutes for it. Staff were amazing, rooms were clean, facilities were also quite good. I'm a big footy fan (soccer for you Americans) and they have 2 tvs with pretty much any channel... More

Great staff Gus,Andy,and jay were great. Had a great stay. Pub was great so after a long day walking in Boston it was great to have a drink and relax. A special comment to the shuttle driver what exit? What exit? The staff was more than helpful in every aspect of this trip. I'll be back again to Boston.

I really loved it at Backpackers, I was traveling by myself and stayed for 3 nights. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the neighborhood was safe (I didn't go out that much in the evening, though) and overall good people. Andy and Gus, as everybody else were fun to talk to. I was really glad that the room had... More

My experience with this hostel began with a prompt and friendly pickup at the Wellington metro stop, which is a six minute drive away from the hostel. The driver was helpful and made me feel welcome right away. When I reached the hostel, I was greeted by a wonderful example of Boston charm. He greeted me with a smile and... More

The hostel is in a lovely neighbourhood, very quiet with not much around. 24/7 public transport within a 15 minute walk, costing $2.65 to get to the city. The only downside was the length of the commute, plus the walk to get to the station or home late at night when the shuttle didn't run. The staff were friendly, the... More
